SPOTLESS!! Beautifully remodeled cabin that sleeps 6-8 adults and 4 children comfortably.

Short term rentals for the 2017-18 winter season will not be considered until Nov. 2017 since I prefer to aquire a family ski lease for the winter season.

This cabin provides the BEST value for vacationers at Donner Lake!

About Kathy Riolo

Our family has been coming to Donner Lake for many years. We love the low key atmosphere and tranquil setting. I would like to give others the opportunity to enjoy my home away from home.

Kathy Riolo purchased this cabin in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for the very lovely stay at your cabin. My family and I had a great time and everyone commented on how nicely the cabin was decorated. The beds were really comfortable and I slept well all three nights.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Don R Cabin was a perfect place to stay for my family and another family. We felt so comfortable the minute we walked in the door. We were particularly impressed by the cleanliness of everything. The home was well supplied for all of our needs. Even though we could not use the private beach during the holiday weekend we found the public beach (which is walking distance from the cabin) to be a lot of fun! We had a wonderful stay at Don R. Cabin!

We always come back!

  • 5 of 5

This is an annual tradition for our family--in fact, this year we came twice. The house is perfect for our needs: roomy but cozy and in the absolute best location, a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of West End Beach. The house has everything we need, and we also love spending time on the front porch and side yard. Cabin owner is just wonderful, always responsive and genuinely concerned about the quality of our stay--which is always tops.

Fantastic Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this location. My friends and I were looking for a kid/husband-free weekend to reconnect and relax. We were able to cook together, laugh together and overall enjoy the cabin all weekend. There was plenty of space for each of us to have our own bed and not too bad with the bathrooms. The patio area proved to be a nice eating space since the dining table was a tight squeeze for our larger group. The cabin is also a great location if you are interested in lake activities just don't forget to bring some cash at the private beach. Overall it was an amazing time and we hope to make this a yearly event!

Amazing stay in our own winter wonderland!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time during our stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer. The kids had a blast on the very easy to access snow hill just down the block. We wandered through the woods around the snow hill with tall trees covered in snow, a little creek and tons of powder! It was a beautiful backdrop for awesome family pictures! It seemed as though we were far into the woods yet we were only steps away from the snow hill. The front of the house was an awesome spot to build snowmen and have snow ball fights since there was so much snow All around the cabin.This was our first time in the Donner Lake area and we are sold on its beauty. Kathy made this stay very welcoming! She was very responsive. Love the supplies provided, makes packing easier. The beds were so comfy and soft! The sink in the bunk room came in handy for brushing your teeth! The card games & boggle was well used, we played them nightly! The fire kept us all nice and warm throughout the cabin. We look forward to visiting again to create more memories! Thank you Kathy for letting us join in on the "Family Fun at the Don R Cabin!"
